Will we have a multicore version for the steam release?
Voliol's right, but even if DF were to go multicore, it wouldn't be Steam-exclusive. Toady has expressed a desire not to keep essential features out of the classic version.

I think it's as much a desire to not have to maintain two code bases.

Most certainly; that'd be a right pain. Regardless, I don't want anyone getting the impression that the Classic Edition is a less complete version of the game.

In my years of playing the game I've never seen a successful kobold thief. Are there any plans to buff ambushers before the big wait?

Unless you can somehow squeeze it into "better military", the answer is most likely no, and I think the odds for getting that into military to any significant extent is quite limited (they might benefit from something general, but that's probably about it).

I think I've see a kobold make off with something not yet cleaned off from the battlefield once, though, but I'm not sure (I've certainly have had animals do that).

Huh?! Did the Goblins run out of dwarven, elven, and human children, so theyíre snatching kobolds now?

Goblins have snatchers. Kobolds have thieves.
Not sure where the confusion is...

1) What exactly does the [IS_SECRET:MUNDANE_RESEARCH_POSSIBLE] interaction token do? The wiki simply states that "the secret can be researched by mundane means", which isn't particularly enlightening.

2) What is the cut-off at which a gait is considered to be fast with regard to the [IE_HAVE_FAST_EFFORTLESS_GAIT_SPEED] and [IE_ALL_SLOW_EFFORTLESS_GAIT_SPEED] tokens?

I can't find any quotes at the moment, but my understanding is that the token doesn't actually do anything quite yet, perhaps luckily for the worlds that already have some necromancer problems. I recall it being called a "for the future" addition, essentially.

Well, yeah, if they were successful you didn't see them!

Don't they generate a "kobold has stolen some stuff" message when they reach the map edge?

Will there be an updated look screen for when our adventurers look at a creature in the steam release similar to what was shown to be upcoming for fortress mode?

You misunderstood the question: Available in Adventure Mode as well as Fortress Mode in the Premium release.
